Chihuly Sculpture

One of the blogs that I read daily is Go Crochet with Ellen by crochet designer Ellen Gormley. One of her recent posts had a photo of a sculpture created by glass artist Dale Chihuly. When I seen this post I recognized his work immediately. I had just gotten back from my doctors office at the El Camino Medical Center in Mountain View, CA and every time I went there I would see this beautiful glass sculpture hanging from the ceiling in the main lobby on the second floor. That very day I snapped a few pictures with my iPhone to share with my husband, it is "THAT" amazing to look at. I had no idea that I would come home and read Ellen's blog to find out that I had seen his work in person. What a wonderful discovery and thank you Ellen. If not for your post I would have never known or thought to ask about it. Below is a photo I took and the link to his web site. Make sure that you click on the photo to view a larger picture. The detail is amazing.

His other works can be viewed here at his web site. Dale Chihuly

Absolutely, stunning piece of art. So much to see. And you always seem to come in contact with the unusual things in life.
